dropped out. >> the defense argued the prosecution lied when she said james holmes was banned from the campus. the judge said well maybe it was an exaggeration but it's no big deal. >> the university is denying this was the reason. a man was hiking with friends when he fell more than 20 feet landing on rocks. ' get him out of the ravine. he had several broken bones but is he expected to be okay those are your headlines. >> we have been talking about tax megeddon at the end of the year when the tax cuts are set to expire and every american would feel it in some form or fashion. now, forget the american tax megeddon, it looks like a global tax megeddon if the united nations gets its way. >> this was discussed at the u.n. general assembly. probably not likely to be instituted or supported by the united states who is already the biggest contribute ter to the u.n. over 20% of the u.n. budget. here is what has been proposed. a 1% tax on billion nargs around the world. a tax on all currency trading in the u.s. a tiny tax on all financial transactions. >> how tiny? >> not sure. >> new taxe
